ACORN convicted of voter fraud in Nevada


For the first time ever ACORN has been convicted in a conspiracy to commit massive voter fraud.

Voter fraud, sometimes called electoral fraud, is a blanket term encompassing a host of election-related improprieties. In this case the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now pleaded guilty this week in Las Vegas to felony compensation for registration of voters. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 10.

ACORN executives conspired to provide cash bonuses to voter registration canvassers. Nevada law forbids such practices because they give canvassers an incentive to file fraudulent registrations.

The ACORN executives previously convicted and sentenced in the conspiracy are Amy Adele Busefink and Christopher Howell Edwards.
